Storyline

Filling in the backstory between TRON (1982) and Tron (2010), Tron: The Next Day chronicles the "Flynn Lives" viral campaign and the 1989 massive movement that followed the unexplained disappearance of ENCOM's brilliant computer programmer, Kevin Flynn. In addition--as the featurette bridges the years between the two films up to Sam Flynn's return--TRON's creator, Alan Bradley, pays a visit to an old friend, making a sweet offer he can't refuse.

A nice little addition to Tron: Legacy (2010)

It's interesting how a short film can either excite viewers for an upcoming piece or draw interests into what might happen in the future or both. This is exactly what this short film does. The title of this 11- minute video speaks for itself. The setting takes place directly after Tron: Legacy (2010), literally the day after. This leads to some very interesting ideas for the upcoming plot of the next Tron sequel.

The story is narrated by an unknown figure called Zachattack who's been the head of a movement since Kevin Flynn's disappearance in 1989 (from what was explained from Tron: Legacy (2010)) called "Flynn Lives". And as this character continues to talk, the audience gets to see a couple interesting things. First, this narration will go through a series of time line dates that explains how the movement was born and how it effected people in and outside the ENCOM corporation.

This brings me to next interesting part - interviews. As the time line continues, there will be several interviews with characters like Alan Bradley, Roy "Ram" Kleinberg (who was in the Tron (1982)) and various civilians. But this is most intriguing and ironic part because the story shows us that know one else knows, not even employees of ENCOM know where Kevin Flynn is. The fact is, only we (the audience) and Sam Flynn know what became of Kevin Flynn. Doesn't it feel weird to know the answer yet you can't tell anyone in real life?

This is some deep stuff we are getting into here. It even gives us some clues to who might be in the next sequel and who is going to play a major part. I also enjoyed the music provided by composers Daft Punk, Musikvergnuegen & Walter Werzowa. All contributed to an effective score mashup. I won't give it a full score because it is not a feature film and it is only giving the audience clues. Let's hope things are kept in continuity for the upcoming sequel because it looks like it's going to get interesting.

This tiny window into what happens the day after Tron: Legacy (2010) is thought provoking and exciting. It looks like things could be big for the next Tron movie.
